Focus Home Interactive know how to pick them. When I first heard about Contrast, a new 2D/3D action puzzle-platformer, I was curious. The first trailer, called Didi’s Trailer, was a short introduction to one of the main characters, whose world seems to revolve around the shadows of her imaginary friend, Dawn, a mysterious character trying to help Didi reunite her parents.

This film-noir inspired game looks to draw upon the wishes of a heart-broken little girl as you get to shift in and out of the shadow dimension battling light against dark in a mysterious adventure.

The game will feature the sultry jazz vocals of Laura Ellis, with the lyrics and original score having been written by the team at Compulsion Games. The song featured in the trailer is called ‘House on Fire’.

Contrast is due for release in mid-November on XBLA.
